Ellie was working day and night in DC, wishing and waiting for the day she could travel again. She grew up overseas and couldn’t help but feel that wanderlust.
After five years of saving and a couple months building out her 2005 Sprinter, she and her cat, Moose, hit the road. Moose is the coolest cat because he goes kayaking and hiking with Ellie! While she occasionally misses the conveniences of city life, she wouldn’t trade them for the freedom she has!
Plus, she lives in a stunning van complete with live-edge countertops and an L-shaped kitchen. Don’t miss Tiny Home Tour’s video interview with Ellie (and Moose) below.

What a pretty van! I like that you have seating and also a bed, and the way you can expand even that is pretty cool! Love the kitty : ) Safe and happy trails to you. . .
This is a pretty home. Love your cat too. Be safe out there and enjoy life. Seems that you are. Wonder if I can teach my cat to hike and go in the boat with me? You have a very cool cat.
I love all of the details. That is a happy life. A cat and a good book is all you need. Enjoy your care free life.
Love the fact that she has a cat that is her companion and actually does the things she does; usually its dogs we see and a cat is much simpler in many ways. Seems like a well thought out build and nicely executed.
I think it’s super cool that her cat is into stuff like that! I don’t think mine would be haha.
What a wonderful little travel abode. She even found room for a coffeemaker – my kind of gal! Nice layout, decor, and I love the live edge countertop. I would like to know how she was able to preserve the bark to keep it from coming off as the slab dried out after harvesting. What a laid back kitty – I wish all kitties on the planet were loved as much as this one.
I wonder that too! She did mention needing to do a lot of oiling, etc. to keep it from cracking…
Great explanation of so much about your life, including life with your traveling companion! Thanks for sharing.
